A Step Back

by mike

I put up this video over at my blog, it’s well worth a look if you’re interested in the idea of Web 2.0

The reason I post it is that I think it’s important every now and again for us to all step back and fully appreciate just how revolutionary this medium that we all take part in is. A group of like minded people ranging from coast to coast and all points in between are able to communicate to an audience of thousands from around the world. It seems like something we would take for granted, but not even 10 years ago this type of a communication tool barely existed.

So as you’re reading this blog tonight, by all means, engage in all forms of spirited political debate. But take a moment to consider how amazing it is that we’re able to have this discussion at all.
